Simufact is a software producer located in Germany which develops numerical simulation software packages for the metal forming, joining, welding and additive manufacturing processes. Simufact is a MSC Software group company which is a part of Hexagon.

Simufact Welding is designed for simulating welding processes in the manufacturing industry. Practice oriented user interface enables the welding specialist to access most complex simulation technology in a very easy way. Following processes can be simulated by using Simufact Welding.

  • Arc welding (MIG/MAG/TIG/GMA, etc.)
  • Laser welding
  • Electron beam welding (EBW)
  • Brazing
  • Resistance spot welding (RSW)


Addition to welding processes, following applications can be simulated with Simufact Welding.

  • Stress relief
  • Mechanical tests (e.g. tensile / bending test)


Following parameters can be investigated by using Simufact Welding.

  • Depth of penetration
  • Temperature distribution during welding / heat affected zone
  • Distortions
  • Stress distribution during and after welding (residual stresses)
  • Phase transformation (only steel materials)
  • Mechanical properties after welding
